I AM: Jealousy

I am everything you wish you were.
I wonder why you want me.
I hear everything you hear.
I see everything you see.
I want everything that you have.
I am jealousy.

I pretend to be perfect.
I feel no real pain, no real joy.
I touch the heart of every person.
I worry everyone around me.
I cry for no one but myself.
I am a mask, a monster.

I understand what I do to you.
I say nothing and everything at the same time.
I dream of making you want.
I try to do just that.
I hope I hurt you.
I am everything you want to be.
I am jealousy.
